happyrain - twitter art (2011)

happyrain is an interactive art project created from using jquery, php, and social media information from twitter.

Full Description

The interactive piece is dynamically created from happy feelings that have been tweeted from people between specific times using twitter. PHP was used to search twitter for today's tweets that expressed happiness. jQuery was used to parse, animate and compose the data being presented. I hope to explore and inspire a unique perspective on what data is and how it may be translated into art.
